Shrewsbury Stories - Call for Participants DEI Task Force

About The Project - 'Shrewsbury Stories'
The storytelling subcommittee is part of the Shrewsbury Diversity, Equity and Inclusion(DEI) Task Force. The members of the subcommittee are Noor Ali, Roop Kaur and Paula Collins. 

There has never been a more appropriate time to start and share conversations about race, inclusion, and diversity in our community. Our attempt is to collect stories directly from town residents. We hope to give residents a chance to share lived experiences of race, diversity and inclusion in our town. 

Residents can share rich inside perspectives no matter how big or seemingly small, be they negative or positive. Every story needs to be honored. When we share experiences, we empower each other.

'Shrewsbury Stories' is a public space under the umbrella of the DEI Task Force where residents can share experiences that can give us a nuanced and intimate understanding of 'DEI' issues in town that may be missed otherwise. The stories elicited can potentially help us learn about the perspectives of our fellow residents who may be feeling voiceless or misunderstood.  Our aspiration is by hearing shared stories, we can attempt to break complex issues such as race/diversity/inequity, into life size pieces. 

We aim to collect residents' stories systematically and amplify diverse voices. These stories can help the Shrewsbury Diversity, Equity and Inclusion(DEI) Task Force gather vital information in order to make meaningful recommendations for positive change.


Residents are encouraged to share their stories. Hearing them may help us illuminate our collective understanding of how Shrewsbury can be a more inclusive home for us all where our differences are celebrated.
